Ewok's Pimped Out Ride...
« on: October 4, 2011, 11:26 PM »
...isn't done, but guess what I found!?  :)

I was cleaning out storage buildings I have for a family sale we were going to have, and wouldn't you know it, I saved a "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves" Battle Wagon, and it's 99% complete, only missing the "hook" piece to the catapult.

I'm going to give it a paintjob since, even with a box and almost complete, these are apparantly worthless.  I'll make it my own Ewok wagon since that was its birth in the first place, but with a good paintjob I think it'll be a billion times cooler, even lacking the big skull.

Plus, I really feel as though Ewoks have a ****** display set-up and I now have a pretty sizable army of furballs between hood swapping, a little minor repainting, weapon swapping, etc.  It's really easy these days to make a decent army of these guys!  If only there were Wompus, right?  Right.

So yeah, something for them to ride into battle (without any clear means of it moving itself).  Yeah, it'll basically just be a big way to display them without having an entire Ewok Village playset out there (I have that too, but yeah, it's a spacehog for figure displaying).

Are you talking about a wampa, wampus cat, or something else?

Wompus... now that's a name I've not heard in a long time.

Story/Origin of Wompus

Hasbro did eventually end up making him with the LFL name "Wunka" in a Kmart 2-pack.

Hes a wonderful figure to boot.  They really did spoil us with Ewoks there for a brief time.

Nice, I grabbed two of those Kmart packs. I'm glad I'm top of something legendary. I missed out on Kaink from the Boarding party set. That set is way too expensive now.


Also, Im glad they made Chubbray. I totally knew the character when I got Kevin Johnson's autograph at celebration.
